and they will be prepared to use military force in defense of those interest. i paraphrase. but we did not have robust military to provide the opportunity. but it was the step the united states took to assume security responsibilities in the gulf. the next that the west took to assume those same duties came into the iran and iraq war beginning in 1980 continuing through the '80s. and through the reagan administration, drawing upon this standard that president carter had before word projected military force in the gulf of in the refi gained of the kuwaiti tankers, putting the u.s. flag on them and using combatants to escort the ships through the gulf putting the u.s. military and harm's way. and finally, 1990 and 91 the united states engaged in desert shield and desert storm after this a dumb and asian of kuwait. after 1991 the united states never left and it has been maintaining order keep being the coal from devolving and insuring free-trade in and out through the gulf with the same missions the british had been doing in the 1800's and 1900's also appeared of american and and british hegemony separat
seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend

the question has the defense and intelligence community accurately forecasted their 10-year, 15-year need for spectrum, and are we making decisions about reallocating that to the private sector in the context of the potential real need that these communities might have for it as, you know, they become more connected, they pick up mobile, you know, drone connectivity, network-centric warfare? have they predicted their needs before we make decision about reallocating that? >> well, so just some facts. in the u.s. the government -- military and otherwise -- has primary access to about 60% of the spectrum, and commercial industries have access to about 40%. when you think about the numbers and compare the number of devices used by government versus commercial, it's not even close. >> yeah. >> and so it's hard not to rook at it and think -- not to look at it and think this is out of whack even taking the most aggressive projections on what government users will need. and, in fact, there really isn't a lot of disagreement that on the government side -- this is true on the commercial side, too,

be a grave mistake if we were to refuse defensive support to a fellow nato country at a time when that country sees itself as being attacked from outside by a neighbor. >> patriot missiles can shoot down aircraft as well as incoming missiles. the u.s., the netherlands, and germany are the only nato countries which have the most recent versions of the technology, which means any deployment could see german soldiers stationed on turkey's border with syria. experts expect about 170 troops to be deployed. the government has already signaled its intent. >> we are waiting. that is the message from greece after another delay in its latest bailout payments. >> the greek prime minister says there's no justification for that delay. he has been voicing frustration after eurozone finance ministers failed to greenlight the payment despite 11 hours of overnight talks in brussels. >> they will give it another shot next monday. ordinary greeks are wondering when the uncertainty will finally end. >> the mood was somber on the streets of greek cities as people that just the bad news from brussels -
military force in defense of those interests. i paraphrase. of course we didn't have in those 1970 years a robust military that would provide the opportunity to deploy force over those long distances. but nonetheless it was a step that the united states took toward assuming security responsibilities in the gulf. the next step that the u.s. took towards assume something of those same duties the british had previously done, came in the iran-iraq war. it began in 1980 and continued on through most of the 1980s. and during the reagan administration, drawing upon that same standard that president carter had put forward, projected military force into the gulf in the reflagging of kuwaiti tankers, putting u.s.a. flag on them and then using u.s. military combatants to escort the ships through the gulf, putting the u.s. military in harm's way. and then finally, in 1990, and 1991, the united states engaged in operation desert shield and desert storm after saddam's invasion of kuwait. so, after 1991, the united states never left, and it's been maintaining order, it's been keeping the gulf from dein

plan to the president he argued if the seal team had tripped pakistan's defenses tripped their alarms, and his men found themselves surrounded by pakistan's armed forces and air force that he advised that they strong arm the compound and wait for washington to negotiate their extraction. it was president obama who said no, if you're going in, i want you to go in with enough force to fight your way out of the% country if necessary. clearly that was embracing of a large risk. that was embracing the possibility of actually getting in a shooting war with pakistan. so it did surprise me that it would be the president who would demand they go in in force as opposed to the military commander. >> eliot: that is fascinating because one presumes had there been a stand off that could have been negotiated out. fascinating and i'm sure there will be more, and maybe you'll write more about that as time goes on. mark bowden, author of the spectacular new book" the finish" the killing of osama bin laden. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you eliot. >> eliot: the decision with the potential to

that's what happened, although right now the israeli defense forces are not saying that they know of anyone being killed there. our source in gaza is this young man's brother. so we're waiting to get some sort of confirmation on the israeli side of exactly what happened. this could be problematic for what is already a very delicate seat fire. and it's interesting here in this country, you have quite a mixed reaction as to the cease fire itself. this gaza, they have been celebrating. here, not exactly. about 59% of the people, a majority in this country, said they wanted this offensive to go on further. they didn't want to end right away. they didn't being the jnidn't t done. a third of the people said they felt israeli troops should go in on the ground. we spent the day yesterday in the south, a place bombarded by rockets and we heard a similar sent chlt. a number of people tellings thaws they were very disappointed with netanyahu. yesterday good gaza, a national day of celebration. you saw people in the streets celebrating, they felt this was a victory for hamas, a sense of legit
